Sunday Morning Notions

I have lots of things I've been thinking about lately. They are definately of no importance...but here's what's on my mind.

I seriously love this place. I have an ongoing wish list from that place. When we have our own house, I want it to be an "IKEA House"
I LOVE this bed ...

Now, I LOVE IKEA's kid's line. When Kason is out of his crib I wanna do his room with this stuff:

Someday right?? The nice thing is that IKEA is SO cheap!! I LOVE IT!!
I can't wait to have our own house. Not only so I can paint and decorate without any limitations but, it will just be so nice to not have to waste over $4000.00 a year in rent. There's a house down the road that they have totally gutted and are remodeling it. We hope it's not too expensive because we would love to buy it and we're hoping they're done around April/May next year since that is when we want to buy. We shall see!

Plus, I want a DISHWASHER. I don't mind doing the dishes because it keeps my kitchen clean but, it would be awesome to have a dishwasher. Life would be so much easier. *sigh* someday.

(I dunno who's dog this is but this picture is hilarious!)
And, I want to have a nice yard where Kason can play and we can spend time outside. Our yard here is ridiculous. I hate it.
Kason has been a stinker lately. The past couple days he has just been so cranky. I have hardly gotten anything done because after 5 minutes of being alone and happy he wants to be held all the time. Hopefully today will be better.

I know that when I became a mom I would be giving up some things. But sometimes, I just wish Kason understood the concept of sleeping in on the weekends. I miss sleeping in until 8-9 on Saturday and Sunday. Atleast today he didn't wake up until 6:15! :o) I guess it does help me get more done during the day but, I do miss some of my sleep.
We are re-doing our tv stand. This is my inspiration:

It's from Pottery Barn and it's $800!! So, I decided to just make ours look like it. And it won't even cost us $100. I will share my finished product when I finish.
Oh, something else that's been bothering me ... my newspapers!! GRRR. I am supposed to get an AZ Republic Tuesday-Sunday and I get 2 papers on Sunday for the coupons. Well, apparently we got a new delivery guy in our area because we've been missing papers a ton lately. His first week delivering I got zero papers. I called and they said I would definately get my Sunday papers. Well, Sunday came around ... I got 1 paper. I PAY FOR TWO because it's nice to have double coupons when there's a really good deal. So, this past week I got a paper everyday but, only ONE today. Today was the third time I have called to complain. Apparently they're going to credit my account for my missing papers and hopefully I will get a Sunday paper delivered tomorrow. What a mess. I'm ready to cancel my subcription and just go buy a couple papers from the machine every Sunday. *grumble*

We have been getting a lot of rain lately. Well, yesterday anyways. It flooded our yard and the streets. It was so nice. Plus it really cooled things down. Our house has been cold!!! But, I love the rain so I won't complain.

That's all that's on my mind. I'm glad today is Sunday. Sunday's are always relaxing. I love just spending time with my family and having a big fulfilling meal at the end of the day. I love Sunday.

Happy Sunday!

2. How long have you been together? 3 years & 7 months

4. How old is your man? 27

You or your man?
1. Who eats more? Um, that's toss up. I can eat a ton if it's something I love ... but then so can he.
2. Who said "I love you" first? Hmmm...I don't remember! I do remember when it happened though. It may have been a mutual thing.
3. Who weighs more? He does ... barely. ;o)
4. Who sings better? I would say I do. He would say he does. How about I leave it at - we both sing well :o)
5. Who's Older? Kameron is by 4 years & 10 months
6. Who's smarter? Kameron probably. He seriously knows something about everything! I don't know how he does it!
7. Who's temper is worse? Probably his. I can get really bad too though.
8. Who does the laundry? I do most of it. Then Kameron usually folds most of it if not all of it.
9. Who does the dishes? We both do. I wash and he rinses.
10. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you're standing at the foot of the bed, I do.
11. Who's feet are bigger? His
12. Who's hair is longer? Mine
13. Who's better with the computer? Probably me. I like to tinker around with things until I figure it out.
14. Who mows the lawn? We have rocks and dirt for our landscape but - if we had a lawn he would probably do it. But, for now we both do the yard work.
15. Who pays the bills? I do. He always knows what going on with our money though.

16. Who cooks dinner? Honestly, Kameron cooks more than I do. I hate to cook. Kameron loves to cook. So, I let him. I got so lucky. Don't get me wrong - I do cook occasionally it's just not something I enjoy doing.
17. Who drives when you are together? Usually him.
18. Who pays when you go out to dinner? It depends on who is holding Kason. It doesn't really matter though because it all comes from the same account.
19. Who's the most stubborn? Me definately.
20. Who is the first one to admit when they're wrong? Um, we're pretty equal on this. But, I hate doing it. So I guess it's him a lot of the time.
21. Who's parents do you see more? It's actually pretty equal. My dad is able to fly down from colorado a lot and we live almost equal distances between my mom and his parents.
22. Who named your dog? Kameron named all our dogs, he's really good at that.
23. Who kissed who first? Well, Kameron tried kissing me on our first date but, I didn't let him. Then, after 2 weeks of dating (how mean am I?!) I think I kissed him while watching Lord of the Rings (romantic huh?)
24. Who asked who out? I think he did. It wasn't really a "You wanna go out?" It was more just a thing where we were friends first and then we held hands (*gasp*) and it went on and on. So, I guess it was just assumed that I would go with him.
25. What did you do? We went to Ben Lewis' pond with a group of people, ate foil dinners, and watched a movie on the bails of hay ... it was some weird movie like "I married an Axe Murderer" I think.
26. Who's more sensitive? definately me!
27. Who's taller? Kameron
28. Who has more friends? I have kept in touch with a lot more friends then he has. And now we have a lot of mutual friends. But, if it's over our lifespan ... Kameron definately has more friends.
29. Who has more siblings? We are the same! We both have 2 brothers.
30. Who wears the pants in the relationship? Um, I do. We try to be pretty equal but, Kameron lets me get away with a lot of the things I want to do. But, we also make most of our decisions together - he just tends to sacrifice and take my side.

After filling this out - I realize how truely blessed I am to have such a wonderful husband. He is so helpful and understanding. He is willing to sacrafice anything if it makes me happy. His dad is such a great role model and I'm glad he looks up to him. I am blessed to have such an amazing father for my children. They will always have somebody who is patient and loving towards them & that they have to look up to.

He's Crawling ...

It's official. His scooting days are over. He now crawls everywhere. And, he pulls him self up and cruises along the furniture but ... he can't get down. So, he screeches at me until I come get him down. Then, what does he do? Climb right back up again! He's so precious.

in other news...

Just last Wednesday I started babysitting for a little girl who lives across the street. Her name is Maren and she's 2. She is really good so it makes it easy on me. I watch her every morning and it's nice because we live so close I can either stay at their house or we can be at my house and I can get stuff done around here.

I also started a business selling bulk foods and home supplies. I still need a name ... any ideas? But, I think it will be fun even though starting it up was so stressful! It will be really nice to use it to get our food storage built up!!

Thatcher is full of college students again ... EAC started today so the dorms are full and everyone is back!! Kameron's brother, Matt, is the new Student Body President so, I have a feeling we'll be attending lots of EAC activities this year!

Kameron's other brother, Daniel, is officially in the mission field. He got to Portland on the 15th. How exciting!

I'm proud of my oldest brother - he graduated from Police Academy the end of June and as of August 16th - he was an official police officer!! I guess now we have to obey the laws :S

And, I'm excited because all of my shows are starting up again!! Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives have their "Preview Shows" this week! So, from now on - Kameron gets to put Kason to bed two nights a week so I can watch my shows. :o) (yay!)

And that's all that been going on in our house ... after reading this though I sure feel a lot busier than it sounds. I feel like I don't have much free time and my house is falling apart. Oh well.

6 Months!!

I cannot believe Kason is already 6 months old! He turned 6 months on the 11th. It is amazing how fast time goes. We are so proud of our little guy and he is so much fun! He can scoot all over, pull himself up, he loves his solid food, he is the happiest baby ever and it's been so easy raising him. He is so much fun and we love him more than anything!! I can't even imagine our life without him now! (you may want to pause the music player at the bottom of the page when you view the slideshow :o)

say cheese!

We went to IKEA in Tempe ... that place is seriously heaven on earth. It was amazing! We spent 2 hours there and had so much fun!! We got lots of things for hardly any money. We've decided we're going to decorate our whole house in IKEA stuff. Amazing.

Getting ready to board the plane!!

Looking out the window! Kason did really good on the plane for the first half. He played and looked out the window and was happy. And then he got tired so, he screamed until he finally fell asleep 10 minutes before we landed so, then I just had to wake him up when we were getting of the plane. Poor kid.

This is the cutest picture ever. When we got back to the hotel after the reunion I called Kameron and put it on speaker phone so Kason could hear. He got the biggest smile on his face! He was SO happy to hear his daddy's voice!

This was the view from our room. Right on the freeway with a train track on the other side ... needless to say - neither of us slept very well that night.

So, for some reason in our hotel we got the handicapped room. This was our stupid shower. It was horrible. After I was done taking a shower the whole bathroom floor was flooded!! My dad had a normal bathroom in his room. Weird.

The flight home ... he slept the entire time. It was wonderful. He was worn out. I have a few more pictures I'll post later. But, all in all it was a good trip and I'm glad we were able to go. It was good to see family and let them see Kason.
